All set for medical school?

Give your medical career a flying start with FREE student membership from Medical Protection.

Having professional protection probably isn’t at the top of your list right now, but you will need it. In just 60 seconds you can join and get support for your whole career, not just your training years.

To give yourself the best start in your medical career, join Medical Protection today.

What is professional protection and why do I need it?

Your university will have advised you to join a medical defence organisation, but you’re still a few years away from really worrying about claims and complaints from patients.

However, when you join Medical Protection, you will receive support during your training years and beyond to be the best doctor you can be. You are part of a member-owned, not-for-profit organisation made up of fellow doctors who can be there if something goes wrong, and help you develop your skills throughout your career too.

We’re the only medical defence organisation with members all over the world. And that kind of expertise matters – especially if you’re thinking about going abroad in the future.

Benefits of Student Membership

Joining Medical Protection is completely free while you’re studying and being a student member means you have access to a whole range of benefits to support you and your studies.

We regularly receive calls from students to our helpline asking for support. If you’ve got a query or need some advice you can contact our experienced medicolegal advice line.

Our FREE student membership includes:

Up to 25% off a wide range of medical textbooks including Oxford University Press and Wisepress.
Advice on ethical issues and whistleblowing when on placement and shadowing clinicians.
Guidance on patient safety and consent.
Access to our confidential counselling service to support you through a stressful case or claim.
A medicolegal advice line including out of hours emergency support 24/7.
The right to request protection for Good Samaritan acts and your elective.
Help responding to and resolving patient complaints.
Access to a dedicated expert legal team which may include clinical negligence solicitors, medicolegal consultants and professional claims managers.

The best part? All of this is completely FREE throughout your time as a medical student
